I adopted this recipe during the Recipezaar Adoption, so I have not idea who Aunt Cora is, but she's got to be one great lady!!! I made these biscuits using Sourdough Starter # 67075 by KimmieOH and they are simply wonderful. I did use the butter flavor shortening and instead of letting them rise over hot water, I just sat them on top of the stove while the cake that was in the oven baked. They rose beautifully. Other than that, I made them exactly as directed.
